It feels great to stomp a trick on your first try. But it's hard to gauge the level of stoke you must feel to be the first in the world to land a new trick the very first time you try it.
Olympian and top competitive snowboarder, Iouri "I-Pod" Podlatchikov landed the first-ever documented Switch Backside Double Cork 1260 / Switch Double McTwist on Sunday, Oct. 9.
While Training with the Swiss Team and Coach Marco Bruni at Snow Park, Wanaka, New Zealand, Iouri shows us what's happening as we head into the Sochi 2014 Olympics. Let's hope the judges know he's goofy.
